Istanbul City Breaks  & Luxury Gulet Cruise  

One of the best ways to experience Turkey is to combine a short break in Istanbul with a relaxing gulet cruise. Sightseeing in Istanbul can be tiring so what better way to unwind than to spend the following 7 nights soaking up the sun on board a relaxing, authentic gulet cruise.

The total duration of this holiday will be 10 nights, however, you can stay longer or shorter in Istanbul as this type of holiday offers great flexibility - please contact us if you wish to tailor your own holiday experience.

10 nights total: 3 nights in Istanbul 4* BB hotel  + 7 nights in luxury Gulet cruise

Day 1: UK to Istanbul:

 Fly to Istanbul and meet  our representative in Istanbul airport, private transfer to your chosen hotel.

Day 2 - 3: Istanbul

Choose to explore the city independently or book a sightseeing tour in advance.

Day 4: Istanbul to Gulet Cruise

Private transfer back to the Istanbul airport and fly to resort airport and meet  our representative at the airport for private transfer to your Gulet.

Day 4 -10 : On board an authentic Gulet Cruise

Relax and enjoy the beauty of the Turkish Coast (or Greek Islands) in one of our luxury Gulet cruise. We offer a few different Gulets -  Deluxe Gulet- Semercioglu IV  which operates as  all Inclusive basis, Seyhan Jan - Standard Plus gulet  operates on Full Board & soft drinks basis. Or you can choose one of our Greek Island Standard Gulet Cruises  as full board basis.

Day 11: Gulet Cruises to the UK

Pick up from your Gulet for the return private transfer to the airport and fly back to the UK. 

Istanbul is uniquely positioned at the crossroads of the Orient and the Occident, with one foot in Europe and the other in Asia. Standing on the shores of the Bosporus, the narrow street where the waters of the Black Sea mingle with those of the Sea of Marmara, Istanbul is also divided by the Golden Horn. Istanbul is a unique link between East and West, past and present. Soak up the history of Topkapi Palace, the centre of the Ottoman Empire, the place from which the Sultans ruled their Empire, or marvel at the sheer beauty of the Blue Mosque and Hagia St. Sophia, and the incredible Grand Bazaar. Istanbul surrounded by water, the city guards the precious remains of the empires of which she has been capital from the Byzantine to the Ottoman.
Gulet Cruise 
Turkey’s coastline is the longest in the Mediterranean; sailing on board an authentic gulet cruise is the perfect way to explore it, meandering at a slow pace and stopping off en route at hidden coves, charming villages and historic sites. You can remain in Turkish waters or cross the Aegean to the Greek islands. This is a perfect way to explore the region's many hidden treasures and sleepy backwaters, enjoying perfect serenity at sea and making friends along the way. We offer a range of itineraries along the Turquoise coast & Greek islands.

Don't just take our word for it...

"We have travelled all over the world and I can safely say that this holiday was one of the best - full of new experiences including a trip in a hot air balloon, visiting underground cities, ancient cave dwellings with amazing frescoes and fabulous landscapes. It was fun and exciting. For the first 2 days of tours in Cappadocia we went with the local representative, who were excellent and our guide, Mustafa Sahin was outstanding. Thank you again for a brilliant trip and we will recommend your company. We may be interested in Croatia next year.

Yours sincerely,"

Barbara Lewis, 30.7.2018
